'Parasite' is pretty sweet. The rest... just meh. There are several songs which kick off with great intros and just when I think it's going to turn into an interesting song it just drops everything cool about the start and goes into ordinary Iced Earth stuff.
And Highwayman just plain sucks
I feel like they experimented a bit with the verses on the first half of the album, but most of the choruses are pretty bland. I still like this album a hell of alot more then the last one, at least there is nothing as vomit worthy as Anguish of Youth
